Although Funky Yo Yo came out on the Versatile label in 1977, its stripped-down instrumentation and near lo-fi production has forced many critics to wonder if these recordings aren't demos from the '60s. Supporting that hypothesis is just how out of sync Covay's vintage grooves sound when compared to other RnB of the late '70s, which had gone disco. Regardless, the man's voice is in great shape, especially on raucous throwdowns like "Three Time Loser" and "An Ugly Woman (Is Twice as Sweet).

Funky yo yo CD. Was RUB963. For a limited time only. The man who wrote Chain of Fools for Aretha Franklin, Don Covay is one of the great voices of R&B; - This mid-seventies album captures Covay at his funky best. I Don't Think I Can Make It. Three Time Loser. An Ugly Woman (Is Twice As Sweet). Yo-Yo (Part 2). Love Is Sweeter on the Other Side. You Can't Get Something for Nothing.

While it's true you'd never place this album among Covay's most essential work, overall it's far better than you'd expect, and worth seeking if you're a serious fan of the singer.

In 1976 Don went to Philadelphia for a one-off LP on Gamble & Huffs PIR label, but the following year he took a collection of his songs to midtown Manhattan and created an LP for release on Versatile Records.
